How to fix GPS problem on Samsung Galaxy S 2 ?

My Samsung Galaxy SII with Vodafone as provider  will not stop saying "looking for GPS...." when in whatever Navigation. It takes ages if ever to lock the GPS signal from the sattelites. Yesterday evening updated to the latest OS on the phone, and installed GPSStatus. It will show the satts, and there seems to be an improvement in locking to a satt when navigating. Allthough, compared to an iPhone it takes ages.

please guys help !!!!

Click menu  >> settings then go to location and security scrool all the way down to bottom. shoudl be the 4th from bottom and it is grey if you do not have an alphanumeric pins set. If you have a visual pin (Connect the dots style) then it is not on. See this thread for how iget a GPS fix on my epic 4g touch.
